Mother Fights School for Son's Basic Rights

HOUSTON—It’s a story that made parents everywhere pretty angry; a New Jersey father who sent his autistic son to school with a hidden microphone. Several women who worked at the school were heard on tape yelling at the boy and calling him names.
Parents with autistic kids deal with these kind of legal issues often.
“When I got to middle school, I not only had a teacher who didn’t know anything about autism, but I had aides in that classroom that all did something different. When you have a child with autism, that is the hugest “No-No.”  It has to be structured, it has to be the same, it has to have a purpose,” says Michelle Guppy.
